NAME

       slapd-null - Null backend to slapd

SYNOPSIS

       /etc/ldap/slapd.conf

DESCRIPTION

       The Null backend to slapd(8) is surely the most useful part of slapd:
       - Searches return success but no entries.
       - Compares return compareFalse.
       - Updates return success (unless readonly is on) but do nothing.
       - Binds other than as the rootdn fail unless the database option "bind on" is given.
       - The slapadd(8) and slapcat(8) tools are equally exciting.
       Inspired by the /dev/null device.

CONFIGURATION

       This  slapd.conf  option  applies to the NULL backend database.  That is, it must follow a
       "database null" line and come before any  subsequent  "database"  lines.   Other  database
       options are described in the slapd.conf(5) manual page.

       bind <on/off>
              Allow  binds as any DN in this backend's suffix, with any password.  The default is
              "off".

       dosearch <on/off>
              If enabled, a single entry will be returned on all search requests.  The entry's DN
              will be the same as the database suffix.  The default is "off".

EXAMPLE

       Here is a possible slapd.conf extract using the Null backend:

              database null
              suffix   "cn=Nothing"
              bind     on

ACCESS CONTROL

       The  null  backend  does  not  honor  any  of  the  access  control semantics described in
       slapd.access(5).
